Wow what a busy few days I’ve had … I had intended for this post to go up Friday but just simply ran out of time to get the post typed out! So my apologies for being quiet for a few days.
I am sure you have a favourite flower as I do and I have a couple but one I truly love is the Tulip so when Stampin’ Up! popped the Blessed Easter into the Occasions Catalogue it was one of the first I put on my Wish List! It’s a gorgeous single stamp and at just $20.95 its very affordable.
Now I recently saw another US Demo, llina Crouse, show how she watercolour her flower stamp with Markers and a Blender Pen and anyone who knows me knows I do not have a good relationship with my Blender Pens but I watched Illina’s video and thought hmm I should try this myself … so I did … and wow … I have a whole new friendship with my BlenderPens! So much so I even did a video on this technique for you!
Here’s my tulip card for you …
I just love how this one turned out – the fence using the Hardwood Stamp and all those Tulips – who wouldnt love a garden that looked like that? I know I would! We are coming up to Tulip Season here in Australia so I might have to get me some bulbs and see how I go?
Now how to colour the flowers?
Here’s what you’ll need …
Here’s my video showing you how to watercolour like I did with my Tulips …
Love the card and would like a hands on lesson? Cool … I’m doing Watercolouring Classes in April! Yes I said ‘classes’! I know that not everyone can attend class during the week or on a Saturday so I’m giving you three options!

Class is $35 and your kits will include a pack of Watercolour Paper, 2 Stampin Write Markers and a Blender Pen to keep and use on your own projects!
